Hurricane Ike and E’s Car

We went to bed on Friday knowing the storm would come through in the middle of the night. At 6:30am, we woke up and watch the trees sway for a few minutes. We looked out of each window of our home and saw no evidence of any damage. We went back to sleep.

At 11am, when I came downstairs, I saw more tree than car in our driveway! (The pile of wood, etc. is from some recent work we’ve been doing around the house.)

Bobby & Patty and Mom came over to help us get the larger branches off the car. Bobby’s chain saw came in quite handy!

The car’s mirrors were folded in from the branches. We found one piece of trim that was not attached. We also found the clips that hold it on, so E was able to replace that. The weight of the branch rested on the sunroof (which surely would have put a large dent in a regular metal roof), so we’ll have to watch that for leaks. There aren’t even very many scratches.
